I appreciate you comments, I have heard this many times in the past.
This is actually an idea i have had for a long time, and have not fully developed it. I have even considered writing a book about it because it is, I believe, a truly unique idea.
The basis is, and it sounds bad until you understand the logic, that greed and profit maximization in the long term should be the ONLY guide to every business decision.
If you look at it in these terms you will see that the company is not benefited in the LONG TERM if it treats its employees like "resources" rather than people. The reason for this is that the company will then gain a reputation for treating it`s people badly and will therefore be unable to aquire and keep good employees in the long term.
Therefore the only conclusion that a person operating under this modus operandi can make is that employees MUST be rewarded for their efforts (both monitarily & with benefits), moreso even than those of the companies competitors, this will draw the best employees and make the company more successful.
Does that make sense, i`m not sure if i have explained this sufficiently?
I believe that any ethical or business question can be resolved taking this approach, i have not yet run across one that cannot. I would be interested to see if anyone can come up with a situation that cannot.
I believe this is the pinnacle of capitalism not profiteering.
And, oh by the way ... everyone is unique, everyone is also replaceable.
